At this time, there are no more planned LSA report code changes to be made by Bitfocus. Communities can begin running new exports immediately, in time for the next soft submission deadline, mentioned below.
Regarding CoC HDX submission status, we recommend that CoC's adhere to HUD's guidance sent in an email on 6/12. Here is an excerpt of HUD's guidance below:
"...please generate and upload a new LSA file under the “2018 updated” anyway. This will allow for an updated flag file to be sent that incorporates other programming changes made directly in the HDX 2.0."
"The LSA team will be running data quality checks with increased frequency during the week of 6/17 to assist CoCs in their final LSA updates. We anticipate the final batch of flag files will be run for CoCs on Thursday, 6/20, and those will be delivered to CoCs on Friday, 6/21."
"As a reminder, the LSA final submission deadline is Monday, 6/24, at 8pm ET. At that time, your Official HUD Submission should be in the “submitted” status."
In order for CoC's to leverage the HUD data quality checks referenced in the 6/12 email, please ensure that your CoC has generated and submitted an LSA report to HDX on or after 6/13 and that that HDX submission is marked "2018 updated". Once this is done, CoC's should expect to be sent a QC flag file from HUD. Specific flags may be forwarded to support but should also be recorded locally. CoC's should work closely with their HUD TA liaison to understand flagging status. We will continue to provide updates as they become available.
